Bollywood superstar Salman Khan who was bitten by a snake at his farmhouse in Panvel kept up with tradition by celebrating his birthday at his Panvel farmhouse with family and close friends. The superstar turned 56 on Monday (December 27). During his interaction with the media outside his farmhouse on the occasion of his birthday, Salman revealed the title of 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan 2' and about the sequel of film 'No Entry'. He also narrated the 'snake bite' incident in the most halirous way. "Tiger bhi zinda hai, saanp bhi zinda hai," Salman, popularly known as bhai, said.
"A snake had entered a room in my farmhouse and the children got scared. So I took it outside using a stick. Gradually it reached onto my hand. I then grabbed it with my other hand to release it. When our staff saw the snake, they thought it was poisonous and due to the commotion that followed, the snake bit me not once but thrice," Salman said.

"Then we went to the hospital, carried the snake along carefully and there we found that it was non-venomous. Still, I was hospitalised for 6 hours and have been injected with all kinds of anti-venom. I am fine now," he shared.
Salman added that he was feeling fine and they have not killed the snake. "When I came back, we let go of the snake. My sister got really scared, so I clicked a picture with the snake for her. Saanp se dosti hogyi (made friends with the snake)," he quipped, adding, "My dad asked me ki kya hua? Saanp zinda hai? So I said yes, tiger bhi zinda hai, saanp bhi zinda hai."
